A 40-something-year-old man is in clinging to life this morning after he was beaten with a bottle last night while reportedly sticking up for his sister who had been a victim of a crime.

Officer Gordon Shyy says all the details came from a witness who claims two men pulled up in a car and stopped at Gough and Golden Gate Avenue. Both the men hopped out of the car and approached the victim, who reportedly shouted: "You robbed my sister."

One of the men took a bottle and hit the victim over the head. The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he is suffering from a life-threatening head injury.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
